Rezidor opens the Radisson Blu Resort & Spa, Cesme, Turkey

29 May 2009


The Rezidor Hotel Group, one of the fastest growing hotel companies worldwide, has opened the Radisson Blu Resort & Spa, Cesme in Turkey. Lying along the crystal blue waters of the Aegean Sea, this brand-new hotel is the perfect base for exploring the stunning natural beaches and landscapes of Turkey’s west coast.

Cesme, meaning fountain, derives from the many sources of water found in the area. It is one of Turkey’s most beautiful stretches, with charming landscapes of cultivated fields of aniseed, sesame and artichokes dotted with fig and gum trees. Ideally situated along the popular beachfront, the hotel is just 80 km from Adnan Menderes Airport and is a short drive from the popular resort towns of Ilica and Alacati, a favourite spot for windsurfing.

Travellers staying at the Radisson Blu Resort & Spa, Cesme, will be treated to an unforgettable experience with beautifully designed rooms that offer magnificent views of the Aegean Sea or the landscaped gardens. Designed for comfort, the property offers 312 modern and sophisticated rooms, including 42 spacious suites, 2 king suites and 4 luxurious duplex villas. The rooms are designed using a palette of light colours and tones to best reflect the warmth of the Mediterranean sun, and feature top amenities such as free high-speed Internet access, individual climate control and LCD TV.

Guests seeking the delicious flavours of the region’s traditional cuisine as well as classic international dishes will be well catered for in the hotel’s two high-quality restaurants. Decorated in warm, bright colours, Element Restaurant offers both Aegean and international cuisine in smart surroundings. Enjoy traditional flavours in a fine atmosphere where tasty dishes are prepared with flair and imagination. Blue à la carte restaurant, located at the beachfront, is the hotel’s seasonal restaurant where guests can enjoy freshly prepared Mediterranean seafood and fish dishes. The Citrus Lobby Bar is the perfect meeting place to unwind and enjoy a light meal or a drink. The Sands Beach Bar offers a special menu and a wide selection of drinks. Guests can also chill out at the outdoor Aqua Pool Bar with its tempting snack menu or dance the night away at the hotel’s nightclub.

Escape from the stresses of life in the elegant and comfortable surroundings of the impressive state-of-the art 3,500 m² Dulcis Thermal Spa & Hammam. Saunas, authentic Turkish hammams or Finnish hammam, massage treatments or various types of manicure and pedicure provide the perfect end to a long day. Then enjoy a freshly squeezed juice around the 1,000 m² outdoor pool. There is also an indoor pool with jet streams, a natural water thermal pool and, for those seeking a bit more action, an ultra-modern fitness centre, two tennis courts and a kids club.
